How Todd Standing Operates - Exposé STOLEN SITE!


This is one of those articles that has been a long time in the works, and frankly it was very difficult to write because the events are so damn convoluted.  There aren't a lot of photos.  It remains convoluted and I may even make further edits or clarifications in the following days/weeks.   However this Exposé should shed light on Todd Standing in a way that will cause all his uninformed supporters to cringe and examine his phony claims.   I've finished it just in time for the SasquatchSummit in Washington State so that people will know who he really is, while he tries to look you in the eyes telling more of his fantastic tales.  Frankly, he deserves no podium to further sell he wares!   His conduct herein is just one more example of how he operates.  He generally gets away with things because he knows few actually validate his claims to their genesis.   He often then covers his tracks by leap-frogging his way from one claim to the next without corroborating his prior one.   Here are a few examples.   And while most of his newer supporters weren't around for most claims he's made, a few of the longer term may recall some, like when he made the claim of Dan Hamilton and the four teens that went missing and were killed in his fabled land of Sylvanic?  He used this alleged event to garner all sorts of support from the most gullible of younger supporters, and yet he never validated it and instead moved on to the next saga to trap those who are easily 'influenced'.  Many of you are also unaware of how he used shill identities on several different forums to write phony posts to build himself up and sell videos.  The different identities and their IP Addresses came right back to match Todd's same exact IP Address.   To his newest supporters who come along, you need to wake up, research his past, and start asking hard questions about Todd and his shenanigans.  Most importantly, make sure you authenticate his answers!  He will give you little validation otherwise, knowing you won't or can't check out his claims.

Another more recent example of his methods was when Todd supposedly validated his own claim on the meaning of Sylvanic to Dr. Jeff Meldrum on the BigfootNorth Radio show.  He claimed the term Sylvanic (or Sol Von Nuk) was from the Assiniboine Native language.  Did Jeff Meldrum ever actually verify this claim?  While I am no linguist, the words Todd mouthed out bare zero similarity to the Assiniboine dialect or accent.  Sadly this is how Todd progresses at pulling the wool over people's eyes, even those with a Ph.D.  I believe Jeff was duped to the extreme.  The Assiniboine claim is one more example of his chicanery in a long list of chicaneries.  Another little tidbit that sheds revealing light on Todd is where he told Jeff on their radio show that he only works on a modest laptop at home.    Jeff then acknowledged that this is all he saw.   That's ironic because Todd's video production company under his alias 'Todd Rockwell' and ran by his sister (or wife) Louise, had phone numbers in several different cities as well as a free long distance.  Jeff Meldrum, do you think just maybe something doesn't add up?



Time to get to the nitty gritty on an issue that Todd needs to be exposed and lambasted for.  Likewise, there are certain respected individuals involved with Todd who need to realize they are helping perpetrate a twisted engineered scheme.   It should also be noted that any respected scientist is expected to maintain a high level of impartiality when it comes to being sponsored.  This is why Congressmen should not receive paid trips by corporations when they will be voting on legislation affecting related products or issues.  Why do I raise this?  Because it is my understanding that Todd paid for the original trips of Dr. John Bindernagel and Dr. Meldrum to the secret location in Alberta.  No matter how courteous it may sound, in this case it is akin to drug companies paying physicians for product seminars in Tahiti where doctor's must ultimately watch the packaged sales presentations but not criticize, receive freebies, and then agree to dispense their product later on.  This is essentially what appears to have happened here as there was a total lack of investigation of the varied circumstances before or after the fact.    Once on the trip and enjoying the scenery, they have already lost the cornerstone of their impartiality because they have become obligated to their host.  Ultimately they find themselves silently endorsing events because they have been corraled and never do openly question the misleading information they've been bombarded with.   They simply acquiesce of their criticism, which is effectively taken and used as endorsement as we see Todd doing all over the media.   Todd Standing is the drug company in this analogy, as he can repeatedly publish that he is "supported by these Ph.D's" without there being any qualification of it.

That's only a minor part of the story in how Todd Standing crosses the line!   His followers and just about everyone else, have heard Todd claim that he would have to spend countless hours trying to locate another bigfoot domicile.  Right?   So I guess he succeeded in that with where he took Dr's Meldrum & Bindernagel, Les Stroud, and Sonya Zohar?     Right?       Well think again!

Todd Standing has essentially committed one of the worst transgressions in the bigfoot field or any other research field for that matter.   The exact place where Todd took all these people and received all the credit and media attention for doing so, was STOLEN!   It was someone else's research site!  This is equivalent to stealing someone's Intellectual Property in that the claims he made were even from someone else.   Even the stick sign nor trees weren't his find.   None of it!   Todd stole another researchers site and let everyone (that includes YOU his loyal young supporters!) to believe HE (The Toddster) discovered it!  He led you on by not telling you the truth!   This is just like lying.   This is the same place where he took Les Stroud.  This is where he took Dr. Jeff Meldrum.  This is where he took Dr. John Bindernagel.  This is where he took Sonya Zohar.    This is where he even took his dentist. lol  This is where he took a few other people too.   He did however publicized how he impressed these guests both on television and radio didn't he?   Did Todd EVER credit anyone but himself on the air for where he took these people?   No!     And Why?  Because he wants the world to believe HE is the Greatest Bigfoot Researcher ever!  Or, is he just a master at deceiving people?

This Stolen Research Site is where Dr. Jeff Meldrum had some form of encounter.  Jeff Meldrum and John Bindernagel, I am addressing you here too because you really need to understand something very critical here, you DON'T have Todd to thank!  Todd Standing broke a Cardinal Rule in any research field, he blatantly stole someone else's hard work and claimed it as his own.   Do you understand?   Its easy to mislead someone just by not mentioning the truth.   You gentleman know the difference.  Then he made you Meldrum, you Bindernagel, you Stroud, and others, unwitting silent partners in his big lie that you are helping him expand because you are so thankful for the experience.    Give me a break!    Sadly you each gave Standing undeserved endorsement without questioning his methods or asking others who know.   You acquiesced and are increasingly becoming complicit in the lies.   Do you REALLY believe his videos are the real thing too?    If either of you won't publicly question his stated questionable evidence or claims, how can you expect your work to be upheld publicly?  How can you expect us to continue relying on your judgement when you haven't used good judgement with Standing?  Your reputations are each at stake because those of us who have some tenure in this field have all seen you fall for a huckster in white.   We're not the naive young followers of Todd who buy into his claims without validation!

Many reading this may remember this Article by Robert Lindsay.  This is where the story gets complicated because it was another questionable person altogether who took Todd there, even though the original researcher had gotten in touch with Todd long before and Todd knew he would be crossing the line.   In the article, which is full of half truths, it discusses how a certain individual named Aaron Arcand took Todd Standing to the location in Alberta, known as Nordegg.   The fact is, Aaron himself essentially stole the site as well, and he had BIG plans in Bigfooting while working with Todd.   (Birds of a feather right?  :)  )  Arcand basically claimed it was his site, even tho the actual person researching the location had final say on who the site was shared with.  Aaron was not to bring Todd there but he did!   Todd however has the silver tongue, and he swept right in and ran with the location as his own, leaving even Arcand in the dust.  Arcand not to be outdone, did the article with Robert Lindsay.  Now Jeff did know the name Aaron Arcand, so was he under the impression Todd took the site from him?  (This is why bigfooters must keep their research sites to themselves except for those they absolutely trust.  Ultimately the locations get ruined by people just looking for attention.)   In the article, AA talks as though he had a right to even invite Standing.  He didn't and in many respects the article by Lindsay was very off track with respect to Arcand's position.   Yeah okay sure, it is Crown Land, but there is private research going on in Public Lands all over.  Its about Respecting other's research.

So if the research site wasn't Aaron Arcand's, whose was it?  Well his initials were KW in the article or Ken Walker, also known as Skywalker on BigfootForums.   Who is Ken?  Well he lives in Alberta.  He is a very well known Taxidermist by trade.   Here is a recent National Geographic Article that shows some of his work.  He was also a Professional Outfitter in the region for 10 years.   He is not some nobody!   And for the record, and contrary to a recent claim, Ken IS NOT Todd Standing's Squatching Partner!!!  lol    I wonder where that first originated?  Nothing could be further from the truth and Ken holds much disdain for how Todd exploited an area that was meant to remain discrete.

Anyway, Ken Walker is a world champion taxidermist from Alberta.  He has his work on display in institutions like the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History (Panda), and other museums, he has received a multitude of awards for his work.  Here is another good Article on Ken Walker.  Ken is someone with actual integrity, unlike what has been generated from Standing and Arcand.  Ken is an avid outdoorsman and hunter.  Ken has a very good reputation and he also has a sincere interest in bigfoot.    Ken didn't want Todd at the site!


Giant panda re-creation by Ken Walker of Edmonton, Alberta, winner of the Best in World Re-Creation and the Competitors' Choice Best of Show at the 2003 World Taxidermy Championships held in Springfield, Illinois, and the Safari Club International Award at the 2003 National Taxidermists Association Convention held in Louisville, Kentucky. 


Bottom line is, the location that Todd Standing stole was already stolen by Aaron Arcand.  This is one of the factors that allowed Standing to get away with it thus far, as Arcand's involvement seemed to insulate Todd and now others.  Nobody would believe Arcand and Jeff wanted nothing to do with Arcand either, so was Jeff completely rolled over by Standing?   Its difficult to say this but Jeff you seem to find it too easy to ride the fence with respect to Todd Standing, likely because Todd led you to have some kind of bigfoot experience.  But Jeff, you owe Todd nothing!   He stole the site and knowledge about it and took credit for it!    Todd Standing was no better than Aaron Arcand in that both stole the location from someone else.    This brings up an interesting axiom:  Its easier to accept stolen goods when one doesn't ask where they came from.  

Here's what Ken Walker has to say about the situation: "THIS SITUATION WAS A REAL NIGHTMARE FOR ME AS IT CAUSED A RIFT BETWEEN MYSELF AND SOME VERY GOOD PEOPLE WHO TRUSTED ME TO NOT LET THIS HAPPEN. I AM USED TO DEALING WITH SEASONED HUNTERS AND FORGOT THAT THERE ARE LESS HONORABLE PEOPLE IN THE WOODS. TOO MANY PEOPLE GET DELUSIONS OF GRANDEUR WHEN FINDING REAL SASQUATCH AND IT'S ALMOST LIKE THEY'RE CHILDREN AGAIN PLAYING MUSICAL CHAIRS. IT'S JUST SAD."

You see, Ken has a few friends who are trappers who shared with Ken what was going on there.  These are the real people involved who probably wish they just kept it to themselves.    Arcand begged Ken to take him there, but Arcand betrayed the trust he was given.  The original licensed trappers are indeed very dismayed by the media circus their trap line area has become.  I have some hope that by exposing Todd and Arcand herein, that the trappers will realize that they shouldn't blame Ken, who also hates the situation and wishes he never trusted Arcand in the first place.    Ken did take Arcand there but it was under the strictest agreement that Arcand would never take anyone else there.   One day however according to Ken Walker, on the same day Ken's mother had died, Ken received a call from Arcand asking if he could take Standing there.    Ken told him 'no!' and explained the situation about his mom.    However the greedy Arcand would still take Standing there two days later against Ken's demands and sad situation.    It wasn't long before Todd was then going around Arcand to access the site, just as Arcand did Ken.   From when Todd first went to the site with Arcand, to his taking others there like Meldrum, Bindernagel, Zohar, and Stroud, it was only a matter of weeks to a few months for each.  Todd knew of Ken Walker all along too, but had easy access around Ken by going through Arcand, while he knew Ken didn't want the site exploited.    Of course Todd never revealed the truth about the site while he took all the credit in impressing those listed above.    Todd even tried getting Ken to reveal the names of the trappers so he could somehow have some 'authority' to be there.   Probably because he knew one day it may come back to bite him.  Well that day has come!   Now there was a time that Ken did try to contact Todd because he was local and in the news so he wondered if Todd was working nearby.  But the present course of events with Todd taking credit deserves no praise whatsoever.  Todd is hustling the poisoned fruit of someone else's hard work.

All that sign where Todd Standing took Les Stroud, Jeff Meldrum, John Bindernagel, and others, where he claimed it was caused by bigfoot, well that information was from Ken and the original trappers, who told it to Arcand, who told it to Standing.  Ken was originally informed of the activity here by his long-time trapper friends who ran trap lines in the area.   They are the ones most angry over the situation because its become a circus there, all because of Arcand and especially Standing.

In case anyone is wondering, I first came across Ken Walker after he and I got to talking on BigfootForums where there was a discussion going on regarding Todd's fake videos.  This was several months ago and believe me, this article has been a very convoluted one to grasp and put down on paper in a way to understand.  It still needs work I know, but more importantly, it needed to go public.  Todd being given an unworthy seat at the podium at SasquatchSummit gave me the extra drive to get this published for that event.  As lengthy as this piece is, I'm trying to keep the mess simplified.

As further validation of this article, in an Interview on MonsterXradio, Aaron Arcand states he turned Todd onto his site beginning at minute: 81:25   Aaron also admits he got his site from Ken Walker.   At minute 86:25 states he showed site to Todd on Crown land.  88:00 Todd brought Bindernagel and Meldrum to his site.  Todd never even mentioned Arron to them on the air in other locations.    The location was stated as being south of Robb MT at minute 109.   Conversation with Aaron ends at 112 but discussion continues to end.   While Arcand himself has lost credibility because he absconded the site from Ken, the information he gives still corroborates Ken Walker's original role here and it remains constant that Todd took the credit, and even monetarily gained from the situation, as it provides him with a falsely earned reputation and marketing point.   It is poisoned fruit!

Jeff Meldrum,  John Bindernagel, Les Stroud, and Sonya Zohar, you really should do more homework on Todd Standing and listen to those who know his past work!   Les Stroud, don't be on such a fast track into a subject you really don't know much about, especially if Toddy was your teacher.  And if you had been working with Todd for three years as he claimed, before the Survivorman Bigfoot, then I must wonder if there is more we should to be aware of?   Oh and was there also another Survivorman Bigfoot episode shot there Les?   This mystery is not some race for celebrity gain.  Don't you guys get it?    Anyway, you were each taken to a place that was stolen from someone else.  I reiterate, it is poisoned fruit.   Not a good path to take.  You each have pretty much avoided discussing Todd Standing or honestly addressing the contradictions he has raised, but now its all coming home.    

Todd is clearly an opportunist who seems to want to exploit this mystery to no ends.   Don't you scientists see this or have you been too blinded by his silver tongue?   What makes Standing an expert to say that bigfoot even needs Protection?  He isn't!  Sasquatch also don't allow themselves to be captured on film as he claims.  Todd's sister is indeed a makeup artist.  They have/had a sizable video production company under his alias name 'Todd Rockwell'.   There is a much bigger connection here indeed.   His grandstanding about Petitioning the US Congress is also a joke.  He has no Legal 'Standing' here in the United States as he is not a US Citizen.   There have been other Petitions as well, not to mention he has no proof of bigfoot in his phony videos.    Ken was even able to identify the eyes that were used but I can't recall their names at the moment.   Todd never even followed through with allowing Bill Munn to examine his videos.  Todd never actually validates anything of substance for that matter.    The subject of bigfoot is at risk of being made a laughing stock due to the events transpiring around Todd Standing.

Todd Standing took each of you to a site he stole from someone else, and by omission, he let all the world think the work should be credited to him as the discoverer.   Don't increase Todd's unwarranted credibility by selling him your reputations under what were false pretense.  In other words, spit out the poisoned fruit you have already swallowed.   Its really saddening that you each didn't do your homework on Todd Standing or listen to those who knew what you don't.   Todd actually succeeded in fooling a couple of PhD's.  That is sad.

Finally, we should all hold a certain amount of disdain for those who steal or reveal other's research sites.  I've had to deal with it myself.   Its sad to see when its done on discussion forums too because there is a greater cost which they don't realize as they are digging for the goodies.   Those who have invested time and resources, ultimately have results become tainted with the introduction of other people who affect the behavior of the subjects or even the environment.   This can affect trail cam results, trust, interactions, and yeah what some call 'habituations'.   Worst case scenario is when friendly interactions turn ugly when those who want to kill one show up in the same area you are working.  If you were doing any kind of research in an area, would you like others tampering with your conditions?    (Think about it.  You know who you are. )    Anyway, this is just like stealing someone written research or intellectual property when inside knowledge is used for their own gain.   I've even kept myself from posting what may be Todd's made-up Sylvanic location out of simple 'principle of the act'.  Even though it is mostly a make believe name and description, there is a physical location that inspired his imaginative creation.  


In closing, nobody likes a person you can't believe, and Todd has led the public to believe one thing in how he presented it as he took Meldrum, Bindernagel, Stroud, and Zohor there.     Todd is not what he claims.  Todd deserves no credit or endorsement for where he took you people!  He Stole the location and it cost those individuals in the end! 

There is an issue about ethics and integrity in a developing field that deserves a final word here.   There are a few with credentials that the rest of us count on to know the importance of upholding such principals.  Its about Honor.   The question is, will those same individuals who have made a certain association, continue to remain complicit and acquiesce, knowing the truth and how it led to their progress and their names being used?  I plea with them to no longer ride the fence on this matter.  Change course in a direction where the findings come because of difficult research and long hours.  Rewards/results should be earned not stolen!


(On a side note, and if they get a chance to read this, I would like to ask the original trappers if they will pardon Ken for the mistake he made in trusting someone.  He truly regrets that it ever happened and I know he is sorry about it and that he values your friendship very much.  We've all made mistakes. )
Count on there being more written about this situation as I amend and add to this article.  Todd you are a real piece of work!  And now you are asking for money from those you fool to advance your scheme even further?  





Toddy, once again you've been a VERRY BAAAD Boy!



ADDENDUM:

There is more to shed light on Todd's Character that I plan on writing about soon.  But until I do, I thought I should share a few posts by someone named Erin on November 22, who has also crossed paths with Todd over the years.  Here however she tells about another person who Todd burned.  I've left her posts unedited as they speak for themselves.  They were copied from Igor Burtsev's Facebook page with her permission.  I have been discussing the issues with her directly as well since my recent article was posted, plus from a while back, which never got finished at the time.  

Anyway, if the following doesn't reveal to each of you remaining 'Standlings' about just what kind of person Todd Standing really is, then you might question if you have conscience issues of your own.   The following event epitomizes just what Todd's character as a human being is really like.  

  • Erin Kearney I was a Todd fan & got him together w/a friend of mine who has a new clan that he sees, Albert Fuhs. He screwed him over Bad but this is really bad! Todd contacted me to do sumthing for him this weekend here in Seattle, Wash & I said I would. @ the time I was talking w/him I said sum things that made him pause a bit & I knew he probably figured out that I was Alberts good friend, lol. Now he won't answer my calls or messages. I'm thinking I may go to his "new" film preview on Tues night to go up to him & bust his chaps a bit? No Todd fan here cause I seen it & lived it too.

  • Erin Kearney One of the nasty things that Todd did to Albert was, Albert showed him how he calls his bigfoots out by doing a Red Tail Hawk call, then they will show themselves. Well Todd videoed this and then took a video of himself pretending to do the Red Tail Hawk call, he been edited it to look like he did it himself. He then took this edited, fake video to the natives up in Canada that had kicked him off their land and told him if they saw him again they would kill him, because he harassed they're hairy man. You see this is why he couldn't go back to that site really. He then showed the video to the natives who were quite impressed with this and figured he had now learned to not harass the hairy men that they protect so they gave him a native name and the rights to go back on their land. The native name they gave him was Red Tail Hawk, this should be Alberts name who happens to be part Native American! That's just one of the things that he did and this isn't even the financial part of it.

How The Toddster Operates! - Part One


Toddster, You've Been A Very Bad Boy!  

Well I've been following this Todd Standing character since the early days of his antics.  My being an avid outdoorsman, so much of what he claimed just never added up.  From his claiming to have found a lost valley, known as 'Sylvanic' to the Native Indians, where you must crawl through a 2' X 2' hole through a mountain chain to get there.  Where if the entrance was covered with 4' of snow you couldn't find it.  How utterly ridiculous!   Then there's the 4 missing teens and Dan Hamilton, which of course there was never any actual proof of ever actually existing.  Then there is the Shill posts of Todd's on different forums.  I had noticed a pattern in certain support posts on one forum then another.    On each site the 'Toddster' posted, he also claimed to have received over 6,000 emails on each.  Yeah right!   Funny thing is, no legitimate persons on any of these sites actually took credit for writing him.   So anyway, I took what I had been pulling together over to GhostTheory after BFRO forum yanked everything, and Javier ran with it since Todd was at the time posting there too.  Especially when I suggested Todd was doing the same thing and that I bet some of those support posts on his site originated from the same IP Address as Todd.   Low and Behold as Javier would confirm, they did!   I then found out from one of the Admins at Alberta Sasquatch forums, that Todd was doing the same thing there too.  Todd sure did get around.  Todd you were Busted then and you are busted now as you will see.  This time however you can't hide the facts that will bury your fabrications!  

I've been collecting a lot of stuff about this guy over the last decade, and there is a LOT.  Some lost, other stuff misplaced, but most where I can find it even though it requires sifting through it to put pieces together.  And believe me, this guy Todd weaves one convoluted series of leapfrogged claims.  I say 'leapfrogged' because I have identified a very visible pattern of this in his behavior.  He'll run with one far-fetched claim and exhaust it, but before he wears it out completely or has to validate anything, he's onto the next claim, and so on.  He has done this over and over and over and he's very good at it.   Sadly, he has collected some naive followers and defenders along the way.  A few of which are now trying to put out fires for Todd with respect to what SweatyYeti exposed.  First the 'Toddfenders' were trying to say someone is photoshopping fake muppet head bigfoots, or whatever he calls that first bigfoot subject.   (Of course now there is a different statement from Todd, which he'd not dare validate because he doesn't know the meaning.)   Anyway, these guys need to give it up because they are just gonna to go down with the ship if they stick around.  Too bad Todd just lets his toddfenders deflect the crap he created in the first place.  Bad form Todd!    He's really got the silver tongue but everyone needs to recognize this before they get sucked in further. 

SweatyYeti, you made a great discovery in catching the missing branches in the so-called muppet head images.  You also got me looking harder at other images I've seen from Todd, and then I discovered something very enlightening about not only his video subjects, but also as it relates to his marketing tactics and overall business ethics, or lack thereof.

There's a lot more I want to discuss here about Todd too, but that would only further delay what I really want to get posted here.   So here it is, and my posting these items falls well within the Fair Use Law as well.  Hang on tight cause you might get a little dizzy as I have while piecing this fraud together.

So first up here an the animated gif image that Sweaty Yeti had posted over on BFF.  I had a copy of both subject angles, in somewhat better resolution then he had, and where the subjects happened to be looking in the same exact direction as one another.  Thus Sweaty Yeti was able to upgrade his image a bit without having to tweak angles.  And BTW, I go by 'Pragmatic Theorist' over on BFF.  Around the house here someone calls me the 'Pragmatic Terrorist'.  I can't understand why?  

Well here is Sweaty Yeti's gif, which does a great job revealing how everyone is being duped.   No doubt there is going to be more to surface on this even with Todd's tentative explanation.   



Here are the copies of the two somewhat higher resolution photos I had, and so I posted them as an over & under comparison on BFF as well.  


So then I got to searching through some of the other links and material I had, basically looking for more clues of contradictions in these and other photos & videos.  This image below is one Todd had previously said was that of a youngster.  And so I got to looking closely at this image.   The little guy is just toooo cute isn't he? lol


My sniffer for coverups however is now in overdrive, but I know I needed to validate each image hereafter as officially belonging to Todd Standing so as to establish that all important provenance.  So I went through his past material and found this video on Sylvanic Bigfoot's YouTube Page.  This is HIS video that he put together after getting lost.  (Oh and I have something to say about those growls he has a recording of, but that is for another blog post.)   Anyway, I now begin following a very juicy hunch.  Except for this which it seems just got covered with a second ad at the start, the time stamps are on each clip so you can go right to the exact spot.  Still load them on your computer as soon as possible before the videos disappear!  But basically the below image establishes this right handed orientation of the bigfoot as belonging to Todd Standing.  Stay with me.


So I reversed the image above horizontally and here's what I ended up with.  These are one and the same image, just reversed.  No other manipulation involved.  Now wait a minute, that face is looking familiar isn't it?  One thing to also keep an eye on is the small branch in front of his nose.  The sunlight on it changes significantly with different shots, meaning much time went by between them.  That's one cooperative bigfoot.  lol


























Hint!


Now some of you might be seeing a few other clues by now too besides that little branch in front of his face.  Keep in mind, these are each authenticated as coming from Todd Standing of Sylvanic.  They are HIS images, authorized by him in his own videos.  Keep looking closely at the branches, they remain exact opposites of one another as in the above photos.  If you don't believe me, capture the images for yourself and flip them horizontally on your own computer.   

Okay but there are more dots to connect, and unfortunately for Todd, many more places where both views are used.  In the shot below, Todd has moved his position with the camera, and can you believe it, the bigfoot isn't even looking at him and yet the branch remains as does the stick stub.  

So once again here is the first orientation re-validated from one of his Search And Rescue videos.   And as the subtitles say, it is "Todd Standing's Actual Footage" with camera data & all so there is no arguing it is owned by Todd.    These are very fast snapshots in the video so use the counter.


Below is another use of the above in a separate video of Todd's showing both viewing angles.  Begins at Second 18.  This time with the Muppet above the branch in reversals.  Being it is ABOVE the branch in many shots, and with Todd claiming to be around 40 YDS away, he should have video of the chest when the head is above the branch because at 40 YDS, he could not help but capture the same area unless he had a 5,000 mm lens, which he didn't.  So where is the chest video Todd?





Here's another use by Standing of the left orientation from Todd's own Facebook Page.  And once again it is an EXACT reversal of the above.   In all of these images and videos of course, Todd did the reversing not me.  Of course he also says it is of a "Real Bigfoot, Sasquatch".  Right!    Oh and note those familiar branches are still there… Interesting how the bigfoot looks off in a different direction.


Everyone still keeping their eyes on the two sticks identified by the arrows?   The below are simply crops of the reversals above and highlighting the sticks.  These are two completely different promo videos by Todd Standing but being manipulated simply by reversing them to expand his so called success as a bigfoot researcher.  (Todd, you are a joke!)    Of course he's used them in many other shots as well.  Its what he does, its who he is.  All he's done is change his lighting and contrast, time of day, camera orientation, but they are the same individual being used for different scenes using the magic of his studio.  



And yet again, here is another video by Todd Standing with the opposite orientation again.  The upper branch stub is slightly obscured but the other one in front of his nose remains.   Again note the lighting change.   This was all done in a very controlled environment.   Todd, you are just too crafty for your own good.  Your hoax became so convoluted you were bound to make mistakes.  We just needed to catch them.  




Keep an eye on those sticks everyone, as they are once again below.  Proof again and again that Todd utilized the same image from the opposite reversed orientation in yet another clip of one of his videos.   This video was made after Adrian Erickson offered Todd $2 million for his Bigfoot Body campaign.  I tried to warn everyone involved.  They can't say I didn't.  


Yes Todd, Now Everything Will Change!

So basically he's been reversing his concocted videos and stills to fool all his viewers and supporters.  He's able to manipulate these images and videos by tweaking the lighting, branches, and other settings to suit his needs.  Will the REAL Muppet Head please stand up?  Yep, that's YOU TODD!!!  

Sheesh Todd, this time pack up your gear and leave town.  You've been royally busted!  Reversing images to expand your product and make people believe you have secured such footage is very unethical.  Didn't you charge people for copies of this stuff too?  How many financial opportunities did you open up by using these fabricated images and videos?   Hmm, what's that name people are calling you?  You know, the one you acknowledged on the radio with Jeff?   Yeah, the one that begins with an 'F' and ends with a 'D', then ends in Standing?  So just how much money did you bilk from people by getting them to believe that both these angles were of a real live bigfoot?  You crossed the line this time.   And it really doesn't matter that you gave some of the early funds to an animal shelter, you still bilked people under false premise.  And you want to HIRE people like Jeff Meldrum to do research using money that was earned this way?   I'll be looking forward to seeing a change in direction from some involved after this comes out.  

And to those few individuals who have been defending Todd, well you too had better take a closer look at the person who fooled you too.   They're all FAKE guys, bail ship while you can cause your fearless leader has taken everyone for a ride.  And if there is anyone who is part of Todd's little scheme, you might want to make yourself incognito for a while.  Oh and the excuses for what Sweat Yeti figured out, just doesn't fly for anyone whose got a brain.   His excuse won't fly here either because everyone was led to believe in both orientations as being his videos.  

And if Todd has recently found some locations where there are Bigfoot, I believe they belonged to others and were taken over.  He's basically leapfrogged his way to where he is, before this evidence emerged by building trust of those who actually do know where there are bigfoot.  He might have a little trouble with that from here on out tho.  To those well known people who have attached your name to Todd, I recommend you too reverse your involvement with haste.  For those like Adrian who have provided financial support and were also fooled, good luck recouping your investment, but the above examples should provide you a good case.   

We know there are more images and video out there to substantiate this part of Todd's hoaxing, so if anyone has something that corresponds to what I've posted above, please let me know and send it to me.  Or if something applies to Sweaty Yeti's gif work, please send that to him, or just send to both of us and we'll correspond to clean this crap up in the bigfoot field.  Make copies of what you have found and seen here too before it gets deleted. With what Sweaty Yeti over on BFF found, and the above, the Toddster is done fooling people.  And if there is someone out there who tries to defend Todd from here on out, well you can bet they are somehow in his pocket.  

I may do some editing or make other additions to this post as more information surfaces, so check back occasionally.  You never know what other juicy tidbits about Todd may be uncovered.  Oh and there is so much I want to say too… 

Oh and Todd, you don't know squat about nature.  The tree breaks you claimed were caused by Sasquatch as boundary markers are nothing but damage from snow loading.  The other downed trees were nothing but accumulated blowdown.   Read my paper linked on the side of this blog about tree breaks, you might learn something!  Just keep it to yourself because we don't want to hear anymore claims from you.

Honor of Being Booted by Renowned Psychologist Matthew Johnson (Big Smile)



How many people have been booted by Matthew Johnson at Team Squatchin USA?  Don't know but seems I am the latest booting victim as of Sunday.  (Big Smile!!) :)   I'm not a new voice in this field but I haven't been very public under my actual name.  I've gone by PragmaticTheorist over on BFF but I haven't posted there lately either just because of time availability.  I also don't think much of hoaxers or hoaxes and have helped expose a few.   I am an avid outdoorsman and hunter.  I know the woods and have had more then most people's share of bigfoot encounters.  My first encounter was 34 years ago in Yosemite National Park where I lived and worked for 3 years.  

Now let me first say, I don't mind publicity when it comes to projects I've worked on.  There have been hundreds of news stories in past decades for projects that had my name attached.  I've held a number of press conferences and have given numerous presentations.  On the other hand, and like I said above, I haven't been very public when it comes to bigfoot.  This has been mostly by choice but maybe that will soon change.  I've done only one formal presentation on tree breaks and one radio show within the field.   I can hold my ground in a debate, plus I am someone with years of experience in this mystery.   I have my own provocative but thought-out concepts.  I can make quality presentations.  I am organized when I need to be.    I also don't mind confronting those who I feel are pulling the wool over everyones eyes, intentional by them or not.  

Well, here's what I have to say about the good Doctor Johnson.  He appears intent on controlling the direction of discussion at his site.  He does not like to be challenged.  He does not like it when you don't agree with him.  Matthew says that bigfoot are connected to Cain because THEY TOLD HIM SO!  Due to this he feels they are our friends.  Well, that is clearly a Biblical claim and so myself, Ron Morehead and a few others were proposing that they may actually be related to the Nephilim instead.  The good doctor does not like this concept.  There you have it, one Biblical theory over another.  Crazy huh?    Well, then I proposed to Matthew that maybe the bigfoot he spoke with are actually deceiving HIM.  Well I suppose Matthew REALLY didn't like that idea.  The doctor, being deceived?  OMG!!  

I should point out, I also have a relationship with Ron Morehead's daughter Rhonda.  We don't know where it will go but we are doing our best to make it work.   Rhonda had a story of something that happened to her by bigfoot that was very unpleasant.   I guess its something Matthew didn't want people to hear about because it would put doubt in peoples minds about what they are really like.  Matthew KNEW it was HER story too and after I posted it at her request on his 'Team Squatchin' site since she is not a member, it was quickly removed.  Someone else there had also recently posted that he was seeing his posts deleted, and since I had now seen a few of mine disappear, well I questioned Matthew why he deleted Rhonda's story.  I never received an answer and my question was removed and then so was I.  Has Matthew been in psychology so long that he cannot help but need to control what people think?   Has it become an art?

Let's consider that Matthew REALLY had a bigfoot tell him they were descendants of Cain.  Remember that is Matthew's claim!  Okay then, the whole premise behind this is that Cain SLEW his BROTHER Abel.    Cain was then marked and sent to wander the Wilderness.  Keep in mind, Cain also LIED to God about the murder, so is Matthew more immune then God is to being lied to?   Also according to Matthew, they told him "WE (Bigfoot) ARE OUR BROTHER'S KEEPER".  Okay so I ask this of you Matthew Johnson: What if the BROTHER you think they are talking about, is actually themselves?  So why couldn't they be lying to you too Matthew, like they did God?  What makes you so immune to detecting lying?  I previously asked him if they could be talking about their OWN kind when they say "Brother's Keeper" but Matthew apparently didn't like that possible interpretation either and he never answered.  I'd say Matthew has some REAL Soul Searching to do if he believes what these Sasquatch are allegedly telling him!

So I'm thinking, we're supposed to believe an unknown species that basically wants us to trust them?   One that claims they are descendants of Cain (Killer of his brother and Cain also lied to God).  So to be cautious, just in case there is indeed a Biblical connection, I must consider that someone (Matthew Johnson) is the one being deceived here.   I won't get into further validation of either concept here, but lets just say for the sake of argument that these cunning and intelligent bigfoot who can get inside people's heads & become invisible at will, do actually have some evil underlying agenda (I emphasize lying).  Yeah I know how corny the whole thing sounds, but again bare with me and if their DNA does turn out to be half human and half unknown, well there may be more to all this besides conjecture.  So let's just say they are demonic or alien for arguments sake, and remember, Matthew has admitted he HAS talked with them using Mindspeak.  If his claim from HIS perspective is true, then what if Matthew is the one actually being deceived here?  What if these bigfoot KNOW that if they can convince someone with Matthew's caliber to be one of their 'Human Protectors', well they have an easy route to deceiving lots more humans who may just follow like sheep.    So yeah, I am going to challenge Matthew's claim even though he is being childishly cowardly in his response.  Not that he doesn't believe his experience which I am not doubting actually took place in some fashion, but because he may indeed be the one being deceived by this species he admits to having Mindspeak experiences with.  

I want to acknowledge something else here.  I have had one such similar experience with these beings some 30 years ago, soon after my first encounter.  I had moved to Oregon and there was a sighting reported in the local news by hunters.  Well several friends and I decided to go out and hunt one of these bigfoot, and once and for all prove their existence.  Keep in mind I was still fairly young (early 20's) and like other young people, I didn't have the best judgement either.  Well the night before we were to leave on this week-long expedition to the Eagle Cap Wilderness, I was awakened in the middle of the night by a horribly loud scream sort of in my room, which nobody else in the house heard.  I sat up in bed awake as I still heard the scream.  After less than a minute as things got quiet and I calmed down, I was then told:  "DON'T COME LOOKING FOR US!!" in no uncertain terms 'in my head'.    This type of mind experience with them has only happened once in my life even though I've had a few other very odd encounters.   I've been truly afraid a few times in my life and that was one of the worst.   Another time was 6 years ago having a bigfoot cut me off on the trail while I was deer hunting in the Cascades.  I ended up having to approach him (with my German Shepherd at my side) in order to pass as it was nearing dark.  Anyway, after that experience 30 yrs ago I never desired to harm one again and realized that 'there is something unusual, different, and maybe even special about the species.   That doesn't mean I trust them as a species because they've got abilities that aren't normal.   Ya, as many claim, their eyes can literally glow red and they can get in your head.  Many bigfooters have seen bright lights, ufo's, and orbs connected to them.  I've never seen this but I do know that brilliant light doesn't automatically mean being associated with God or goodness.   I have also seen how people can become so obsessed with this subject, and that's not necessarily a good thing.  

I have experience herein and Matthew should be more cautious about who to be rude to.  I believe he's got tunnel vision after what he probably considers a very spiritual event, he is corralling what are essentially becoming followers into Groupthink.  Yeah I say followers.  His ideas could eventually be dangerous to humanity as the acceptance of these beings grow, which is evidently his desire too.   Consider this, as bigfoot's existence reaches into everyone's reality, that may also signal changes we cannot yet comprehend.   Why do I say this?  Because these bigfoot do like it when we talk about them.  Ask any of the habituates who are deeply involved whether bigfoot like it when we talk about them.    And so, Evil does like the attention too as many discovered with the old Ouija Boards when young.    Yeah they are a people, but as the old saying goes, 'beware the olive branch' because one seems to have been presented to Matthew Johnson.  These beings do mess with people on a still not-understood level and there are plenty of veteran big footers out there who have long ago learned this.  What gives Matthew 'Carte Blanche' when it comes to knowing what is truth or lies from 'Cain's Descendants' when God himself was lied to by Cain?  He may have one or more degrees in HUMAN Psychology, but these creatures are different and he's got NO DEGREE with them.  

I have no vendetta against Matthew but I am calling him out on his rudeness, arrogance and just plain old poor common sense.  He's shut himself off from an important voice in this mystery.  He may find himself sinking in his error and he has only himself to blame.   Maybe he should reflect on his views some more, just like he did when he figured out how wrong he was with another well known female bigfooter.   

And readers, its a strange strange world out there and things may become stranger before they reach any sort of normal we desire.
